I couldn't really answer that, to be honest. I'm simply not knowledgeable enough. But it seems to me that it would certainly be somewhere below "millionaire".


Is the designation "millionaire" determined with reference to salary (before the person is unemployed) or net worth?


A valid question.

Because if you make a million and spend 970,000, you're pretty well fucked if you lose your job. If we don't expect someone making $90,000 to start selling assets to pay for unemployment, I'm not sure we can treat millionaires differently. Or maybe we can.

... Yeah... that's pretty bad.

... Proof enough though that you cannot lump Tea Party members in one basket. I am hard-core conservative, avid Tea Part activist, and I am in total agreement with you that this man's position is a travesty.

Arkansas Republican endorses death penalty for children

http://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/ar ... s-children
The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellioius children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21:



This passage does not give parents blanket authority to kill their children. They must follow the proper procedure in order to have the death penalty executed against their children. I cannot think of one instance in the Scripture where parents had their child put to death. Why is this so? Other than the love Christ has for us, there is no greater love then [sic] that of a parent for their child. The last people who would want to see a child put to death would be the parents of the child. Even so, the Scrpture provides a safe guard to protect children from parents who would wrongly exercise the death penalty against them. Parents are required to bring their children to the gate of the city. The gate of the city was the place where the elders of the city met and made judicial pronouncements. In other words, the parents were required to take their children to a court of law and lay out their case before the proper judicial authority, and let the judicial authority determine if the child should be put to death. I know of many cases of rebellious children, however, I cannot think of one case where I believe that a parent had given up on their child to the point that they would have taken their child to a court of law and asked the court to rule that the child be put to death. Even though this procedure would rarely be used, if it were the law of land, it would give parents authority. Children would know that their parents had authority and it would be a tremendous incentive for children to give proper respect to their parents.

That dude is crazy.

Here is his buddy though;

Loy Mauch, Arkansas Lawmaker, Defended Slavery In Letters To The Editor

If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?


Interesting point.

Exodus 21:7 wrote:And if a man sells his daughter to be a female slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who has betrothed her to himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has dealt deceitfully with her. And if he has betrothed her to his son, he shall deal with her according to the custom of daughters. If he takes another wife, he shall not diminish her food, her clothing, and her marriage rights.

He's completely serious. That's a direct quotation from his book, God's Law.

The description:
The founding fathers of the United States were immersed in biblical teachings and principles, and they employed them in the construction of our governmental and economic systems.

The central Christian doctrine is that every human is born with a sinful nature. We are all born self centered, believing that everyone around us has the obligation of satisfying our every desire. Political conservatives accept this central premise.

Liberals reject it and believe government is the solution for every problem. Men
working together through the power of government have done more harm than any other human institution. A free competitive market works better than a government controlled market; it harnesses man’s basic sinful nature and uses it to provide the greatest good for the greatest number of people.

The reason the United States has been the most prosperous and productive nation in the world is because it has followed Christian principles more closely than any other nation.

these two represent 2/3rds of all the politicians that I know from Arkansas, the Dry State. Bill Clinton is the 3rd.
